for 2012, up the russell 2000 up 12 percentage points, the s&p up 31, -- s&p up 11. but it's europe, europe actually ended up looking pretty darn good. germany up 30%. i mean, i look at that, and i say all of the fear that was out there including the euro stocks, 600 did unbelievably beautifully. and you say, my goodness, if you went toward the worst, most fearsome place, europe, you would have done way better than here in the u.s.. >> yeah, absolutely. well, it's like everything that happens in nature as well as the markets and the equity markets. when things get stretched too far one way, they will come back to a happy medium. we saw that in the equity markets this year. they were the best performing asset classes of all the places you could put your money, and it's not without knowing what's going on when you had unprecedented types of money flows coming from central banks around the globe, that money had to go somewhere. the u.s. market has performed very well. by the time we get done today, especially on the fiscal cliff talks, we're going to be up about 14% in the s&p 500. the leaders
. secondly the steel making coal which is used in europe brazil and in asia and we are one of the top three exporters of that coal in the world, and as the recovery in steel production increases in asia and in europe and latin america, that should be better for demand for that coal and hopefully pricing and really benefits most of the coal companies. ashley: steel prices firming as well. >> it seems that way, yes. ashley: the epa has been tough on the coal industry. >> you have said it, yeah. ashley: does that have an impact? >> it has. you know, certainly the equities were discounting a romney victory back in november. got hit pretty hard afterwards. now the stocks are back to where it was prior to the election. in my view, there's not much more major harm that the epa and other regulation can do to the coal industry. but certainly as the economy dictates demand, electricity generation and more confidence, that will be more important than say the epa. the epa has done their damage for the most part. you can never say never but i think most of the negative news is behind coal for the epa. a

risk not only coming out of europe, but also with the fiscal cliff negotiations. the bottom line is it's going to be very difficult to maneuver in tight spaces, so widen it out. for us that means in the s&p we want to pie 1340 to 1320, and as the market gets up to the 1430 area and above, we want to reduce our equity exposure. in the dow call it 12,5 to 13,5. in the nasdaq 100, 2400 to 2800. liz: okay, hold on. let me just hold on the s&p because that's what we have here. 1320 to 1340 buy in when it hits there, and can then, of course, sell. >> right. liz: so this requires real involvement on behalf of the investor, doesn't it? >> well, i -- the point is, liz, we, as i said, you've got a lot of headline risk, a lot of back and forth with the news stories. the point is to be disciplined. map those levels out, and then don't get caught in between. so i think if 1340 to 1320's a great place to add to your equity exposure, and then as we get up to the 1430 area and above, you want to reduce your equity exposure, and don't get caught in between. liz: sorry, i interrupted you because i wante

. >> let's see what happens at the start of the year. the fiscal cliff is not resolved, europe people think is resolved, recommending people go down the curb in terms of yield. less than four to five years of overall average duration of portfolio but investors rather have the ability to invest in case inflation does spike. you have to hunker down for the next six months to see how the economy pans out and is resolved. liz: yesterday robert gray did a report on taxi medallions, am i missing something, is there some great trade out there? >> look at the emerging market. they're the exact opposite of the rest of the world. take a look around, you have an interesting opportunity in china as the economy we accelerated in recent months and they can spend money through stimulus and they are cutting rates because they have a long way to go. i have levers to pull the rest of the developed world has already pulled and the pedal to the metal so it could be some opportunities. liz: what happens to the market tomorrow, do we recover, yes or no? >> all the euphoria built up ahead of the meeting has been
